Hakafa means "encirclement."
We are a Reform congregation
of people who choose
to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for nearly 40 years. But as we grow,
our intimate, caring, and
welcoming atmosphere remains.

New announcements are posted each Wednesday.
